I really don’t want to go ski-ing. I don’t like being cold, I don’t like having to wear a lot of layers. I also think ski-ing is dangerous and I hear it’s expensive. Why would I bother? I like swimming pools and the skrrt-skrrt-skrrt sounds of crickets in long grass. Plus, I am lazy.

BUT! I have been struck upside of the head by a certain kind of ski aesthetic that I think is rather fabulous. Sitting in a chalet by a big window with a view over snowy mountains having done some ski-ing, facing down some sliced boiled potatoes wiped in cheese and a glass of whatever TF you drink when you are ski-ing, sounds okay to me.

So in these cold months, I am adopting the air of ski-chalet around myself, which I may or may not have slightly confused with some Scandinavian stuff and a 70s scuzzy park vibe. And I wish to be dressed the part.

It started out with a lust for this JW Anderson top, which is just too expensive even in the sale so I’m not even going to bother with a link to it.

Then moved on to this Madeleine Thompson cashmere sweater, which is actual heaven (fi you’re into it, it comes up small – I have this in an L).
